Citizenship Afghanistan

Haroon al-Afghani is a citizen of Afghanistan currently held in extrajudicial detention in the United States Guantanamo Bay detention camps, in Cuba.[1][2]

Haroon al Afghan arrived at the Guantanamo detention camps on June 22, 2007 .[3][4]

On June 22, 2007, the United States Department of Defense acknowledged transferring Haroon al-Afghani to Guantanamo.[4][5][6]

The DoD claims that he is al al Qaida courier, and "There is significant information available that Haroon al-Afghani is a senior commander of Hezb-e-Islami/Gulbuddin."

According to DoD spokesman Bryan Whitman[6]: :{| class="wikitable" |

  • "He commanded multiple HiG terrorist cells, conducted IED (improvised explosive device) attacks in Nangarhar province, and is assessed to have regular contact with senior Al-Qaeda and HiG leadership,"
  • "He may have additional information with respect to ongoing Al-Qaeda operations, and may have information that is useful to us in thwarting future attacks."
  • "Remember that Guantanamo serves a number of functions. One is its an intelligence center as well as a detention facility, and its a place where we have built the structure and capacity to try people for ... War crimes through the military commission process."


In late November 2008 the New York Times published a page summarizing the official documents from each captive.[7] The New York Times stated that no further official records of his detention—no Combatant Status Review Tribunal had been published.[3] They identified him as identified captive 10028.
